Join local historian John Martini for a history walk around Fort Funston. You will learn it is more than hang gliders and dog walkers. The now-recreational area began its history as San Franciscos most remote (some said desolate) army post in 1900. From World War I to the Cold War, the post featured barracks, massive gun emplacements, trenches, antiaircraft guns, and NIKE missiles that protected the southern approach to San Francisco Bay. Today, the remains of many of these fortifications lie buried beneath the city’s last large expanse of natural dunes. Walk will cover unpaved, sandy areas.
This walk is free but limited to 30 WNP members and their guests.
